Large home-made beef burgers packed with delicious spicy flavours.

Makes: 8
Cooking time: 50 minutes


  • 455g frozen minced beef, thawed
  • 250g frozen chopped onions
  • 40ml Hoisin sauce
  • 30ml each chopped frozen jalapeño chillies, garlic, parsley and coriander
  • Ground pepper
  • Olive oil spray (if frying)

To serve:

  • 4 large burger rolls
  • Mayonnaise
  • Salad leaves, whole or shredded
  • Tomatoes, sliced
  • Mango Chutney (see recipe below) or sweet chilli sauce


1. Using a large bowl, mix the minced beef and onion together. Add the
Hoisin sauce, chillies, garlic, herbs and pepper; mix to combine.
2. Divide equally, shape into patties and flatten into four large burgers – approximately 13 – 14 cm across.
3. Transfer to a cling film lined baking tray. Cover with additional cling
film, and chill for at least 30 minutes.
4. Grill or fry for 5 – 6 minutes each side, until cooked through.
5. Cut the rolls in half across and toast the cut sides. Spread the bottom halves with mayonnaise. Cover with salad leaves, a burger, tomato and home-made mango chutney (see recipe below).
6. Serve with cooked frozen, skin on chunky chips.

To quickly and easily prepare mango chutney – place 150 ml cold water and 225g granulated sugar in a heavy gauge saucepan. Heat slowly to dissolve the sugar, stirring occasionally. Add 480g frozen mango chunks, 10ml frozen chopped garlic, 2.5 – 5 ml frozen chopped chillies, 150ml white wine vinegar, 2 bay leaves and 7.5ml Nigella seeds. Bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low-moderate, whilst stirring occasionally, for approximately 30 minutes, until thickened. Fill a 450g sterilized jar with chutney, seal. Use the remaining chutney immediately to serve with the spicy beefburgers.
